In most case if your pushing fluid out of the pump this is caused by the system sucking air in while it running and For has researched this issue and determine that the O rings are leaking at the reservoir allowing air to enter the system and push the fluid out. They have released a service bulletin dealing with this concern as well the repair needed. I have enclosed the bulletin in the link below. Have a look and see if this is the problem you are having.
